January 2013 - Getting it Done Challenge

Judy at Patchwork Times often inspires me to become more organized.  Will I ever have the neatly labeled food pantries and shelves of color coded fabrics that she manages to keep up with - probably not.  But she has issued a challenge to list 4 things that you'd like to accomplish each month - and I think that'll help me get right on track, with sewing at least !

  • Finish first 3 BOM for Moon Glow Quilt.  I love this BOM.  I want to stay on top of it, so that when I receive the finishing kit sometime at the end of this year, I can box up the top and ship it off to the quilters !
  • Hem Adam's pants.  As a mom that can sew, I feel terrible when my son's pants are dragging on the ground.  He's a tall boy - not real sure why his pants are so long - but I do need to get those pj's hemed !
  • Work on the color challenge from last year.  Judy from Patchwork Times also issued monthly challenges last year to create a quilt using colors from different photos.  I did one - designed it, and worked up many of the blocks, but didn't finish.  It's a quick and easy block to make up, so I'd like to at least work on it.  I'm not putting down that I want to finish it - because honestly I'm not real sure how much is left to do
  • Start designing a quilt for Amanda.  She recently got married to the man who has cooked dd#2's birthday dinner for the last 3 years in a row.  I love this couple, and need to design them a special quilt.  She likes more muted colors than I usually work with - but I'll make her whatever she wants to match her living room !
Here is the first block from Moon Glow - you can see from the colors why I love this quilt !
